Standards-Based Grading

There are two grading scales used to determine your grade. The summative grading scale is used to determine the grade for a particular summative and power standard. The semester grading ranges are used to determine a cumulative grade for all power standards covered during a semester. This will be the grade recorded in your transcript.
